A lot of people want to return to 1.1b.
Can someone advise a correct way to do it?

For what its worth Zen_F :

Uninstal. Reinstal, patch up to 1.1b.

Back where you started!

You cannot...Only an uninstall followed by a reinstall and patch up.

Make sure you back-up your skins though!!

And if you want to restore your campaigns and settings don't forget to backup those folders: DGEN, MISSIONS and USERS

I was hoping I could save the uninstall/reinstall of the whole game...

****NOT TESTED BUT WHAT HAVE YOU TO LOSE???****

RENAME your current FB folder.

1. Install FB from disc to default folder, and patch to 1.1b.

2. Then copy the following files from your NEW folder to the renamed folder (Substitute c:\temp\fb for the folder into which you installed FB):

Directory of C:\Temp\fb

Then delete new installation and restore name of temporary folder.
Do registry fix.

The only gain from this is all data will be safe....unlike a re-install.
I can create a self extractor that will roll back 1.1 to 1.1b when I get home tonight (BST) if any one wants it.....

I´ll go for the reinstall & re-1.1b-patch. Make some coffee & it will be over before you know. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I cannot explain how warm and fuzzy I feel that I was too lazy to install the patch. Sometimes the best course of action is to do nothing.

hi,
I repatched all SFS.files from the 1.1b out of a temp folder

...no connect problems to online servers with 1.1b ..

have you tried just copying over the 1.1b files into your game folder? im sure alot of (if not all) the 1.1 final files would get overwritten by the 1.1b ones.
